  • God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
    Guess he kissed the girls and made them cry
    Those hard-faced queens of misadventure
    God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes
    Fiery throngs of muted angels
    Giving love but getting nothing back, oh

    People help the people
    And if you're homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
    People help the people
    Nothing will drag you down
    Oh, and if I had a brain, oh, and if I had a brain
    I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned all those good hearts away

    God knows what is hiding in this world of little consequence
    Behind the tears, inside the lies
    A thousand slowly dying sunsets
    God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
    Guess the loneliness came knocking
    No one needs to be alone or sinking

    People help the people
    And if you're homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
    People help the people
    Nothing will drag you down
    Oh, and if I had a brain, oh, and if I had a brain
    I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned, all those good hearts away

    Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, ooh
    Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, ooh

    People help the people
    And if you're homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
    People help the people
    Nothing will drag you down
    Oh, and if I had a brain, oh, and if I had a brain
    I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned all those good hearts away Writer/s: Simon Aldred
